The February 4th in-person Registration has been cancelled due to the impending winter storm. We will rechedule the registration for next Tuesday, February 11, 2014 at the Bethel Public Library. You may also register online for spring soccer with PayPal or credit card. As in previous years, we also encourage coaches to do a "Team Registration". They may fill out the team registration form, collect the payment from their parents and bring everything to the February 15th registration. We also ask all fall coaches U7 and up to contact their players to let them know if you plan on coaching a spring team either in Bethel, or 4v4 in New Richmond.
BYSA Spring Soccer Information
February 1, 2014
After a very successful fall campaign, BYSA will host spring soccer this season at Bethel's Legion Fields. The CCSA spring league will host U7-U14 leagues and play 8 games on Saturdays and Sundays. The spring season will end with a two and out tournament. We should have more information about dates and formats after the February CCSA Board Meeting. Spring Player Fees in Bethel are $50 per player. In Bethel, we like to consider Spring Soccer in a more relax atmosphere than fall soccer. We ask coaches to limit practices as kids are participating in other spring activities and sports. Several of the coaches last season did not practice once the games begun.
Coaches interested in participating need to contact our new District Rep, Andrew Weiss, ASAP, to reserve your spot. If a coach wishes to signup their fall team, they will just need to download the Spring Team Registration Form (found under the forms tab) and return it with full payment on March 15 to the in-person registration or mail by February 25 to:
Like last season, we will also have individual signups. Individuals will be placed on teams in their age brackets if possible. If no teams are available in the age bracket, we will work with the player on "playing up" or playing on outside the district. Players will receive a full refund if these options don't work. All new players will need to provide a copy of their Birth Certificate before playing. Below are important in-person registration dates. You may also register online at the "ONLINE FORMS" tab on the menu bar.
IN-PERSON REGISTRATION DATES:
February 4th inside the Bethel Library between 6pm-8pm(CANCELLED)
February 11th inside the Bethel Library between 6pm-8pm
February 15th inside the Bethel Tate Middle School between 10am-12pm
Another great option for Spring Soccer and all U6 players is New Richmond's JUST4KICKS program. This is a terrific 4v4 program played on Sundays only in New Richmod. Perfect for younger players and parents who have kids in multiple age groups who don't want the travel involved with the CCSA league. Please visit the NRSA website at www.NRsoccer.org for more information on the JUST4KICKS league.
We will have more information on the CCSA dates after the February CCSA meeting. Any new coaches will need to complete concussion training and Kidsafe forms prior to starting the season. Feel free to contact any BYSA board member if you have any questions about Spring Soccer. Our numbers can be found on the menu under the "CONTACT INFO" tab.

We hope that many of you can take advantage of the two summer soccer camps that are available in Bethel. The ever-popular Jack Hermans will be returning to the American Legion Fields for his annual camp from July 14 -18, 2014. The Challenger British Soccer Camp will also take place at the American Legion Fields between June 9-13, 2014. Information about these camps is available at the Soccer Camps link to the left.
Dozen Divas Bring Home Title
October 31, 2013
The Dozen Divas GU8 team played their best soccer at the end of the season and brought home the 1st place trophy after battling through two championship games on a cold dreary day in Blanchester. BYSA also congratulate Wardlow BU14, Darlington GU14, Elliott GU10 (pictured below), Weis BU10, and Uhl GU9 teams for their second place finishes in the tournament. BYSA is very proud of organizations success thanks to the relentless hard work of our coaches, players, parents, and many others. BYSA looks forward to continuing our success in 2014.
